Washington Examiner White House correspondent Brian Hughes reports that one of the first responders who joined President Obama on stage at this morning’s fear-monger-palooza “felt like a potted plant.”

Exactly.

  • seriouslysickntired

    I thought they looked like potted plants on Pot

  • SansMercy

    This statement will only make Obama want to toke up.

  • peteee363

    did they get paid as extras?

    • dancingontheheadofapin

      They should get hazardous duty pay.

  • John C

    Pretty sure that was racist of that first responder. Because…racism. And…stuff.

  • BorderLine Guy

    So have some balls then. Why sit on stage for that farce?

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      They didn’t let Circle K clerks on stage for this event, so your fantasy of RAGING AGAINST THE OBAMA MACHINE is all for naught. Maybe they’ll give you a call when he’s rallying for minimum wage workers rights?

      • Stone Bryson

        Ah, it returns. I take it the Wifi reception in your mom’s basement improved?

      • lillymckim

        I have fire fighters and police in my family and they would have REFUSED to be a potted plant for this man!
        Obama should call up his 1%er buddies at the Floridian Golf and Yacht Club next time he needs a plant! Maybe Tiger would play potted plant for him?

        • Jazzee

          if they offered me a free trip to see him I would spit on it
          for too many reasons to say —he is mentally unbalanced for one

      • KansasGirl

        When did the federal government start paying first responders wages?

        • Linda (Lou) Norris

          Or teachers’ wages? Just another lying vacuous speech about how terrible it is to not spend money….

    • Naresh Krishnamoorti

      Exactly. Any decent man would have refused to get on stage with that POS.

      • Cajun

        Exactly, and you are right, a POS. And to that libiot that posted the [email protected] reply to you, at least a Circle K clerk works for an honest living and not on the government obammy free-phone tit, like you libtards are.

      • Jazzee

        and any decent woman would have done the same

    • hwy505

      Right – because he is going to risk his career and his family’s future to make a point by not standing there. Get real!

      • Jazzee

        just refuse the offer to go and be a plant still a free country right?????????????????

        • dancingontheheadofapin

          That’s debatable at this point.

    • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

      Or turn your back on him when he starts speaking. :) Especially if you’re in the line-of-sight of the cameras.

    His act has gotten really old.
    He should have insisted that some of them carry a ladder and hoses.

    After this exhausting morning of demagoguery, Barry and Reggie and Michelle need a couple of vacations.

    • LilliaNinTX

      Coming back from vacation and then wagging his finger, shameful

      • lillymckim

        Yup Obama put in 20 minutes reading from a TelePrompTer…
        tee time!

    • Jazzee

      oh yes reggie……..and a 1000/hr for golf lessons cute isn’t all this?????
      and then again reggie hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Obama plants, you got your woman plant, doctor plant, asian plant, black plant, child plant, Mexican plant, soldier plant, police plant, etc..

    • peteee363

      don’t forget the planted souls from benghazi?

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      Q: What do you call a conservative plant?
      A: A weed.

      • DwellsInFire

        What do you know. Looks like we have a libtard among us. Notice folks the predictable libtard insults in response to conservative facts… As for weed, Obama’s done plenty of that, so this lib commenter can’t even get that right.

      • SJ’s Dad

        Hey Azzhacktion,
        Q. What do you call a libtard “Plant”?
        A. . . . DUH! . . . a TROLL!!!!!

      • Cajun

        what do you call your mom’s mouth? I know, I know!!!!

      • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Look! It’s trying to talk, just like a real little boy, how precious!

        Excellent Point! that would be EXACTLY what Hitler would have said about the Jews while he was having a Bier with his Prost Buddies Himmler and Gorieng

    and you looked like one as well! So did the group 1.5 weeks ago.

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    When did paying police, fire and EMT become a federal expenditure?

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Good point.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Good point.

      When Dems can use it to play against fear.

      Maybe in DC it is. DC is weird that way.

  • $29561723

    I don’t care if it’s the POTUS or not asking you to join him, I’d refuse to be a prop for this Marxist demagogue. To hell with the consequences. What you see here is fascism on display.

    • Jazzee

      amen amen

    • dancingontheheadofapin

      All you people saying you’d refuse to go, don’t know if it was required of this group to be present. Would you put your personal prejudices ahead of the welfare of your family? The job market is a bit tight now and will be for the foreseeable future. I would suggest that those who object to being “used” could spend some quality time learning history, the Constitution and politics, because it is going to take all three to overcome what is coming down the pike for America. Our right to vote is our weapon, not stubborness and faulting someone else for doing what he may have been required to do.

  • austin feathers

    Congress should buy him a green screen so we can keep officers on the streets where they belong!

  • K-Dubya

    Just looking at the picture, I’ve narrowed it down to 7.

    • Jefferson Tea Party

      heh

  • Sterling Hallbrook

    Does this effin’ clown king have no shame? Ever? I would never agree to be involved in any type of “theatre” involving that commie, even if ordered. Why did they do it?

  • Stone Bryson

    This man really IS the supreme collectivist; he cannot stand on his own, without having others surrounding him. Seriously, how seldom does this POTUS give a lecture (um, I mean ‘speech’) without a bushel of people on-stage with him?

  • philomena

    Obama the great divider, day-by-day making the divide between Americans greater and greater every day, with endless help from his fifth column, the fourth estate.

  • Dracoprimus

    style over substance, the Democrat way.

  • bo1921

    Anybody standing/sitting behind an obama agitprop speech IS a potted plant. It’s always been the case. Good that people are now sharing their feelings about this abuse publicly.

  • http://twitter.com/1RandiStarr Randi Starr

    I didn’t see a gun to anyone’s back.

    • bo1921

      You sure about that? And aren’t you the good little apologist? Brownie points for you.

      • http://twitter.com/1RandiStarr Randi Starr

        Actually, I am not apologist nor do I approve nor have I allowed myself to be a tool.

    • bo1921

      You sure about that? And aren’t you the good little apologist? Brownie points for you.

    • KansasGirl

      Why would you?
      They are government union employees, er (workers).

    You are a potted plant. Think. Wake up. Move on from this Marxist you dumb ass.

    He sees the Police as his servants and women should be seen and not heard.

  • lillymckim

    What does Obama do when he needs a backdrop call the Union and tell em’ to send in the clowns?

    I would refuse to do it and beg them to fire me!

  • lillymckim

    I’m very curious as to what their Chief said to make them stand there like potted plants

    When you have family to support and a job you love sometimes you will suffer shame to keep what you have.

      give the king what he wants, lets keep cutting each other down and dissolve what little strength we have left.

  • Jazzee

    did the first responder not KNOW he was being USED????????????Lordy come on dude wake up obama only dupes and uses people he hates law enforcement and the military where have you been buddy???????????????

  • bidentime

    I didn’t realize potus used real people for his backdrops. Just figured he had access to a really good rental company.

  • anjullyn

    I’d be interested to know if the attendance was mandatory, but of course, our ethical journalists would never ask that ?

  • Roto

    Dear first responder… you ARE his potted plants, because you fell for it.
    And the children he always uses are brussels sprouts…
